Man solves Rubik's cube puzzle...after 26 years.

Puzzle fan Graham Parker has finally solved his Rubik's Cube - after 26 years' worth of attempts. Delighted Graham, 45, from Portchester, Hants, has been tirelessly trying to solve the riddle of the Cube since he bought the toy in 1983.

Married dad-of-one Graham has endured endless sleepless nights and after more than 27,400 hours he finally managed to conquer his personal Everest. Builder Graham said: "I cannot tell you what a relief it was to finally solve it. It has driven me mad over the years - it felt like it had taken over my life.

"I have missed important events to stay in and solve it and I would lay awake at night thinking about it. "Friends have offered to solve it for me and I know that you can find solutions on the web but I just had to do it myself. "I have had wrist and back problems from spending hours on it but it was all worth it. "

I solved it years ago, and here's how I did it. I just peeled the colored stickers off and placed them accordingly.
